Has anybody tested the dolby digital 5.1 on their xbox yet - i bought my ps2 with the knowledge that it could do surround sound and its a load of arse - just need to know if anybody else has tried it on the X-Box yet - or on the game cube for that matter

Cheers

The 5.1 Surround on the xbox is great.As far as i know all games are supporting this & it greatly enhances the gameplay if you have the right kit of course.The Gamecube only supports Dolby Surround but its still very effective.

You need a receiver that takes opitcal output, you need either the HD pack from MS or the stuff from Monster, and an opitcal wire. Let me say this though, WOW. It kicks *** playing in 5.1 . Halo is great with all the bullets shooting past you.
